Movie Info

In this offbeat sci-fi-drama, Rosetta Stone (Tilda Swinton) is a scientist specializing in biogenetics who has made a major breakthrough in artificial biological engineering. Rosetta has created a type of Self-Replicating Automaton, which looks like a human being, but is in fact part machine and part living organism. In order to survive and reproduce, Rosetta discovers her SRAs need certain human genetic compounds that are found only in male semen. Hoping to kill two birds with one stone,

Fails as entertainment, being so ineptly directed and written it often has the feel of a high school production by kids with more money and ambition than talent.

A minor addition to the tiny genre of feminist science fiction films.

It's a quiet tour de force for Tilda Swinton.

Stumbles from one catatonic scene to the next, mixing aggressively 'clever' ideas with strident dialogue.

A silly mad scientist film dealing mostly with feminist issues.

viewers have to endure new media artist Lynn Hershman Leeson's uncomfortable attempts at taking her cracking-stiff theories and translating them into dramatic narrative form

February 20, 2004 Full Review Source:

Leeson's sensibility is a thoroughly irritating mix of intellectual hauteur and juvenile smuttiness.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A muddled mess of cybernetics and new-age philosophy that goes nowhere slow, despite its abbreviated 80-minute running time

February 19, 2004 Full Review Source:

Can a movie be fascinating and boring at the same time?

February 19, 2004 Full Review Source:

'Teknolust' embarrassingly resembles insulting, insistent television commercials. Unfortunately, they may be the future.

Wallows in dubious plot constructions, shoddy design, immature camera work, and a fatiguing lack of thrill.

February 6, 2004 Full Review Source: Mixed Reviews

I can't imagine anyone not being disappointed by this movie, which dares to be different yet fails miserably doing so.

Clumsy, no question, but perhaps understandably burdened by its sprawling ambition.

The picture proves tiring, its pretty, color-coordinated images are like flipping through a funky fashion magazine.

November 28, 2003 Full Review Source: Oregonian

The plot is vapor, but tech whimsy, movie lifts and funny multiples of Swinton sustain a San Franciscan charm.

Yes, it's odd that a movie so focused on sex and computers could be a complete letdown, but this bizarre trip is just that.

An oddball, biotech Rocky Horror Picture Show for the intellectual set.

Teknolust circles cyberspace with genetically enhanced proof that sci-fi films don't have to be pretentious to be fantastically fun.
